For various reasons, we figured The Woman in Black was a one-and-done affair for Daniel Radcliffe. After spending almost the entirety of his film career in one franchise, who would expect him to jump right into another? And so when the sequel, The Woman in Black: Angels of Death was announced, it was no surprise to hear it would take place many years after the events of the first film, and therefore probably not involve Radcliffe.
But now Hammer Films CEO Simon Oakes says that there will hopefully be more than one sequel to the original film, and that Radcliffe could make an appearance of some sort in Angels of Death. Spoilers for the original film follow. Read More »
This past spring, Hammer Films announced that it is developing The Woman in Black: Angels of Death, a sequel to the horror/thriller that starred Daniel Radcliffe. The first film was Radcliffe’s first major non-Harry Potter role, and interest in the actor helped push the picture to a gross of over $100m worldwide. The fact that the film wasn’t bad at all didn’t hurt, either.
But for a number of reasons we didn’t expect Radcliffe to show up in the sequel. Jon Croker, who worked on the first film as story editor, has penned the follow-up, and now we’ve got the story details below. Spoilers for the first film are generously included after the break. Read More »
Fingers crossed that the sequel to The Woman in Black, to be called The Woman in Black: Angels of Death, will have an era-appropriate cover of Slayer’s most famous song buried somewhere in the story. (Seems unlikely, but one can hope. I’ll probably have to just be happy with the song’s use in Gremlins 2.)
Here’s what we know about the sequel to the highest-grossing British film of the past 20 years: the story begun in the first film will be continued 40 years later. Jon Crocker is developing the script based on a story by Susan Hill, who also wrote the tale upon which the first film was based. But will Daniel Radcliffe return? Big spoilers follow for those who haven’t seen The Woman in Black. Read More »

We’ve seen a couple trailers for The Woman in Black, the first film to feature Daniel Radcliffe in the post-Harry Potter stage of his career. But this new trailer, which clocks in at a very economical sixty seconds, is the best yet. It is just that economy that makes it work, as we’re given just enough plot setup and hints of thrills and ghostly horror to let the film start to get its hooks in. Check it out below. Read More »

The last trailer we saw for The Woman in Black was heavy on atmosphere but light on plot, deploying shots of run-down toys, some mysterious little girls, and a terrified-looking Daniel Radcliffe to set an effectively creepy mood. The newer UK trailer is somewhat more straightforward, offering fewer shots of eerie monkey toys but a much better idea of the actual story.
Radcliffe stars as young lawyer Arthur Kipps, who travels to the countryside in order to settle the affairs of a recently deceased client. Once there, he encounters the spectre of a woman hell-bent on revenge. The period horror was directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake) from a screenplay by Jane Goldman (Stardust, Kick-Ass), which in turn was adapted from Susan Hill‘s 1983 novel. Ciarán Hinds, Janet McTeer, and Roger Allam also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

It’s nice to see someone trying to make a genuine ghost story. We used to see a lot more films in the vein of The Woman in Black, but they’ve fallen somewhat out of favor. For his first post-Harry Potter film role, Daniel Radcliffe chose to go with a ghost tale scripted by Jane Goldman (Stardust, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) based on the well-regarded novel by Susan Hill. The first teaser for the film, released a couple months back, had some good chills, and this full trailer is characterized by a thick, bleak atmosphere that is quite appropriate for a story about a young lawyer who confronts ghosts and secrets while settling an estate.
